Labi Siffre - (Something inside) So strong
Tekst en muziek: Labi Siffre
(1987)






The higher you build your barriers
The taller I become
The farther you take my rights away
The faster I will run
You can deny me
You can decide to turn your face away
No matter, ’cause there’s



Something inside so strong
I know that I can make it
Though you’re doing me wrong, so wrong
You thought that my pride was gone, oh no
Something inside so strong, ooh ohohohohoh
Something inside so strong



The more you refuse to hear my voice
The louder I will sing
You hide behind walls of Jericho
Your lies will come tumbling
Deny my place in time
You squander wealth that’s mine
My light will shine so brightly
It will blind you, ’cause there’s



Something inside so strong, so strong
I know that I can make it
Though you’re doing me wrong, so wrong
You thought that my pride was gone, oh no
Something inside so strong, ooh ohohohohoh
Something inside so strong



Brothers and sisters
When they insist we’re just not good enough
When we know better
Just look ’em in the eyes and say
I’m gonna do it anyway
I’m gonna do it anyway



Something inside so strong
And I know that I can make it
Though you’re doing me wrong, so wrong
You thought that my pride was gone, oh no
Something inside so strong, ooh ohohohohoh
Something inside so strong



Brothers and sisters
When they insist, we’re just not good enough, mmah
When we know better
Just look ’em in the eyes and say
I’m gonna do it anyway
I’m gonna do it anyway
I’m gonna do it anyway
I’m gonna do it anyway



Because there’s
Something inside so strong
Inside so strong
I know that I can make it
I can make it
Though you’re doing me wrong, so wrong



You thought that my pride was gone, oh no
Something inside so strong
Something inside so strong
I know that I can make it
I can make it
Though you’re doing me wrong, so wrong
Me wrong



You thought that my pride was gone, oh no
Something inside so strong
Something inside so strong
Something inside so strong
Something inside so strong
